THOUGHTS AND EMOTIONS THROUGH MY COLORFUL SCULPTURES. THE ABSTRACTION GIVES FREE REIN TO YOUR OWN FEELINGS AND INTERPRETATIONS.

About image
Lina Maalouf Husseini (French-Lebanese 1965) is a self-taught artist.

With a degree in Public Administration from the American University of Beirut, her artistic journey has led her in a different direction.

Having lived in both Lebanon and France, her work reflects a blend of influences from the East and West. This fusion manifests as a form of transcendence in her art, bridging diverse cultures and sensibilities.

In her experimentation with materials, colors, and compositions, she takes ordinary elements and situates them in unfamiliar contexts. Her approach questions how people usually see everyday things. Her artworks feel positive, suggesting a sense of freedom from society's rules.

Lina Maalouf Husseini's pioneering innovation lies in the use of PVC as her primary medium. A collaborative duo emerged with her husband Roland Husseini, an engineer and specialist in PVC material. Their partnership combines creativity and technical expertise to produce unique and unconventional artworks.Working at high temperatures, they skillfully manipulate the materials. The meticulous handcrafted work of the Husseini Duo retains an element of spontaneity..

She exhibited in Beirut, Dubai, New York, Miami, Abidjan, Marseille, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. She also participated in auctions dedicated to humanitarian causes.

Her PVC sculpture « Together » is part of the permanent collection of the Peoria Riverfront Museum, in Peoria, Illinois.

By: Rowynn Dumont. In the rich tapestry of artistic expression, where metropolises like New York, Paris, and London often bask in the limelight as the epicenters of creative genius, the brilliance of innovation knows no geographical bounds. In the beating hearts of lesser-celebrated locales, we unearth the authentic alchemists of artistry, quietly weaving their masterpieces in the shadows of conventional capitals. In this voyage of revelation, we embark on the odysseys of three extraordinary artisans: Angel Espino from Denver, Colorado; Lenor Bingham from Portland, Oregon; and Lina Husseini from Beirut, Lebanon.
